A Family Tree. The history of our family with illustrations by Norman Rockwell A Family Tree. The history of our family with illustrations by Norman Rockwell
WPGS 00123  The joys of genealogy: An introduction. A pirate on your family tree? A duke or an earl? It's not likely nor is it likely that you will prove yourself heir to a fortune or gain an impressive coat of arms. The unknown-to-you ancestors that you discover when you become an amateur genealogist are almost certain to be farmers, small businessmen or craftsmen who lived and died in relative obscurity, either in the eastern U.S. or, if you go back further, in Europe. That's because most of the men and women who settled this continent were ordinary hard-working people, poor in purse but well endowed with energy and ambition. (Few pirates settled down to produce sons and daughters; few dukes and earls left the comforts of their ancestral estates to establish new homes in the American wilderness.) Why bother, then, to find out who those ancestors were? You will understand, once you begin family-tree-climbing. | 1981 | 127 Pages | Hard Cover; showing wear but inside pages are like new.

Book One of Early African American Deaths in The Pittsburgh Courier From March 25, 1911 – December 2 Book One of Early African American Deaths in The Pittsburgh Courier From March 25, 1911 – December 2
WPGS  00104 Compiler: Marlene Garrett Bransom.  This book is a compilation of deaths and obituaries that appeared throughout the Pittsburgh Courier community columns and headlines. These deaths represent individuals who lived in the small towns of southwestern Pennsylvania such as Beaver Falls, Belle Vernon, Braddock, Brownsville, Canonsburg, Connellsville, Charleroi, Erie, Greensburg, Homestead, Elizabeth, McKeesport, Monessen, Monongahela, Oil City, Scottdale, Sharon, Sewickley, Uniontown, Washington, and Waynesburg, as well as Pittsburgh; in eastern Ohio, the towns of Akron, Cadiz, Dayton, East Liverpool, Salem, Smithfield, Warren, Wilberforce, Youngstown and Zanesville; in West Virginia, the towns of Huntington and Wheeling. Other towns across the state of Pennsylvania such as Altoona, Harrisburg and Williamsport are also represented as well as Buffalo and Flushing, New York. Many of these deaths are just one line long; however, that one line often contains the name of the dead person, their parent’s name and where and when the deceased died. Many of the deaths that appear in this book are much more detailed describing when and where the deceased was born when they came to a certain area, how long they lived there, whether or not they were a slave, the plantation they came from, and who enslaved them.

This invaluable genealogical data, most likely, is only found in The Pittsburgh Courier. Many of these early settlers were remarkable citizens who established the first churches, schools, and social clubs. They were professional and nonprofessional, skilled and unskilled. They were of all classes and represented a variety of religious affiliations. The beginning of the book contains a listing of all the deaths that are featured in the book and concludes with an every-name index at the end of the book. | 2011 | Paperback | 206 pages

WPGS 00110  Author: Paul K. Heckethorn.  This publication is the first book ever to list all the clergymen and women and laypersons who helped to build this county into the great religious community that it is. It covers every known religious body in this county from 1765 to 1915. Over 4,000 names and over 500 religious sects are covered. This book could be used by future historians to authenticate their works. The sources are there -- all in one great book! Includes cleric’s name and degree, faith, the name of the congregation if there was one, place where the congregation was located, and the years of service to that particular congregation. This is a great aid in helping to determine religion or even the church when a cleric’s name is the only clue.

Delaware Runaways, 1720-1783 Delaware Runaways, 1720-1783
WPGS 00113  Compiled by Joseph Lee Boyle | It is estimated that 350,000 to 500,000 indentured servants were imported to the American colonies through 1775. The Chesapeake region, which includes Delaware, received the highest number of servants, followed by Pennsylvania. Although by the start of the 18th century the importation of black slaves increased dramatically in the Chesapeake and southern colonies, white bound labor—both voluntary indentures and convict laborers—remained significant until the American Revolution. On the other hand, in the decade before the American Revolution, an estimated 20-25 percent of the Delaware Colony's population was enslaved. The 1790 U.S. census demonstrates that 70 percent of the state's black population were slaves, and slaves were 15 percent of the state's total population of 59,096 people.
 
Of course, if indentured servitude and slavery were to be significant sources of reliable labor, runaways could not be permitted to go free with impunity. This book, accordingly, identifies indentured servants and African-American slaves who fled their Delaware masters and whose apprehension was elicited in colonial/Revolutionary newspapers’ ads. These ads included descriptions of runaways and criminals living in Delaware, as well as those born or having contacts there. The ads contained references to the runaway’s age, sex, height, place of origin, clothing, occupation, speech, and physical imperfections. In addition, the ads often featured attitudes of the owners and personality traits of the runaway.
 
In compiling this work, Mr. Boyle consulted twenty-one colonial newspapers from Boston to Maryland, It should be emphasized that Delaware had no newspapers for the entire time period covered in Mr. Boyle’s compilation, and neighboring New Jersey lacked them until 1777. While Maryland had two newspapers for much of the period, many of the issues did not survive. Hence, the compiler relied heavily upon the Pennsylvania Journal (or Weekly Advertiser) and the Pennsylvania Gazette, particularly for the early years under investigation. In all, “Very impudent when drunk or sober” refers to 2,500 runaways and their masters. It also includes an informative introduction concerning the status of indentured servitude and slavery in Delaware, as well as a detailed bibliography of the sources Mr. Boyle consulted and suggestions for further reading.

Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace
WPGS 00020 Evidence Explained is the definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources. It begins with a simple question: Why do we invest so much of our energy into the citation of sources? Followed by the intriguing answer: Because all sources are not created equal. As a citation guide, Evidence Explained is built on this simple question and answer. According to the author, there are no historical resources we can trust at face value. Records simply offer evidence, and their assertions may or may not be true. To decide what actually happened, we must understand those records. To analyze that evidence and judge what to believe, we also need particular facts about those records. Elizabeth Shown Mills.  Genealogical Pub Co (2007)

Scottish Trade with Colonial Charleston 1683-1783 Scottish Trade with Colonial Charleston 1683-1783
WPGS 00120   By David Dobson.  'This is a very welcome book which makes a contribution both to the burgeoning field of Scots in the Empire and to Atlantic history. Dobson has fresh things to say about the controversial Scottish role in the slave trade, emigration to the Americas and the intriguing role of the east of Scotland in colonial commerce, a sector previously assumed to be the exclusive monopoly of Glasgow and the Clyde ports. A thoroughly researched study based mainly on original sources.' TM Devine, Sir William Fraser Professor of Scottish History and Palaeography and Director of the Scottish Centre of Diaspora Studies, University of Edinburgh. In the series: Perspectives: Scottish Studies of the long Eighteenth Century Series Editor: Andrew Hook The long eighteenth century in Scotland is increasingly recognized as a period of outstanding cultural achievement. In these years both the Scottish Enlightenment and Scottish Romanticism made lasting contributions to Western intellectual and cultural life. This series is designed to further our understanding of this crucial era in a range of ways: by reprinting less familiar but important works by writers in the period itself; by producing new editions of key out-of-print books by modern scholars; and by publishing new research and criticism by contemporary scholars. | 2018 | 369 pages | Paperback | Great condition.
